Relief Vs Remorse

19/08/2022 Yesterday Squeaky went into one of the travelling crates by herself and I was able to close the door. Until then she had only put her head and shoulders inside to reach the dish with food but yesterday I pushed the dish to the back of the crate. Of course, when she realised that [...]

Summer Challenges and Incompatibilities

When Squeaky had her babies, she showed all the guile and skill needed for a feral cat to survive. We searched high and low but were unable to discover where she had hidden her kittens. We found the box where they were born, but she had moved them by then. In fact, we though they [...]

All Things Great and Small

I can't believe what has happened! Mimi, the little mini pinscher, died last night, Friday May 13th 2022, at 7.45pm. She was ten years old. She and her mother came to us when she was three when her foster Mum, a young woman of only forty-two, died of cancer. She had a lovely walk on [...]

What makes it all worthwhile

At the end of a one day workshop, particularly one on a topic such as reactivity which evokes so many emotions, it is a gift to hear a participant say that she is leaving with hope because she saw improvements in her dog throughout the day, and she could see that he was much calmer [...]

Myotherapy

Last Saturday Salma had a myotherapy treatment with Leticia Sánchez del Moral. Salma loved it. She really did lean into the work, allowing skin rolling and the treatment of various parts of the body. Leticia confirmed what I had already noticed with TTouch observation. There were a couple of hot spots in the cervical area [...]

Eyesight

From the day she arrived we thought that Salma’s eyesight was not too good. This perception has been confirmed as time has passed. She sees movement, even at a distance, but static objects present a problem and she may bump into things. How can this be? All our previous beardies have had excellent eyesight and [...]

Eliminating Harness Noise

The other day I took Mimi, our little mini pinscher, to visit Leticia Sánchez-Moral who is a myofascial therapist. During our chat she offered an interesting tip to overcome the reluctance some noise sensitive dogs have to having a harness put on due to the noise that the clip makes when it is closed. I [...]

Listening to the whispers … and then acting on what they tell us!

  In TTouch classes we place great emphasis on Edie Jane Eaton's  concept of listening to the whispers so that our animals do not have to shout to be heard. Some time ago now with my last beardie, Sasha, I had the chance to see how important it is to pay attention to these small [...]
